Carolyn Hudson Pharr was born August 8, 1939 to Henry Spurgeon Hudson and Clara Tarlton Hudson. She grew up in Porter, NC and graduated from Pfeiffer College in 1961 with a bachelor's degree in English. Carolyn worked as an executive secretary for many years at the Savings and Loan in Albemarle and then at KPMG in Charlotte. After retirement, Carolyn enjoyed canning, making quilts and baby blankets, and spending time with her children and grandchildren. She loved Diet Coke, prisms, Carol Burnette, and laughing. She was affectionately called "GaGa" by her grandchildren. She dearly loved her family and loved coming to Boone to visit.
She is survived by her three children Jennifer Pharr Van Gilder (Tom) of Boone, Angie Pharr of Boone, and Matt Pharr (Trish) of Douglasville, GA; three grandchildren Molly (Colin), Emma, and Abigail; and her great granddaughter Lexi.
